These Roasted Turkey Legs are moist on the insides and crispy on the outside! 

Roasted Turkey Legs

Go ahead and serve them with a salad such as my lemon and paprika potato salad that would also go AMAZING with this Turkey. Or how about some mashed potatoes to make it a meal!

I’m super excited to share my first Turkey leg recipe with you all today.

Turkey is a lean meat and is very inexpensive, which makes for a great meal option if you ask me. 

I believe that is because most people think of Turkey only around the holidays!

But not us, we like to have it often in our diets.

CAN YOU ROAST TURKEY LEGS

Of course, if you can Roast a Whole Turkey.

Then you can surely roast some legs, just make sure you cover them with tinfoil though. As this prevents them from drying out!
